Roundup of chalkboards

That happens to me all the time. Of course, sometimes that empty space is my belly and I need ice cream.

This is a DIY home decor blog, so no ice cream for now.

If there’s one thing that fits in almost any space, it’s a chalkboard. They hang on the wall, stand easel like on their own. make an old frame gorgeous or take on their own shape.

Easy Chalkboard Easel #chalkboard #easel #diy

I made this several years ago and haven’t updated the post, but the idea is so easy. Use two chalkboards the same size and drill holes along the top edge. Then “sew” burlap ribbon through the holes. Open the bottom and stand as a chalkboard easel. I also added a spindle to the top edge.


I made another chalkboard easel for our clubhouse.
